This best-selling title will be relaunched in September 04 with a fresh new cover design. Written by popular TV artist Alwyn Crawshaw, it is the fifth top-selling title in the Learn to Paint series, and acrylics is a versatile and increasingly popular painting medium. Alwyn Crawshaw demonstrates all the basic techniques of painting in this versatile, modern medium of acrylics. Acrylics can be used like oil paint (but without the long drying time) or watered down to look like watercolour. Practical aspects such as mixing colours, learning brush control, and understanding perspective, shape and form are all covered in a clear and straightforward way, ideal for beginners. There are also many exercises and step-by-step demonstration paintings of a variety of subjects -- landscape, seascape, boats, flowers and still life -- using both the oil and the watercolour technique.
